NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
353 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Discussion... 
upper level low continues to impact the area but at much lesser of a 
degree this afternoon. Water vapor imagery shows this feature 
becoming stretched out and starting to lose its integrity. This is 
what you/d expect with upper level trough digging across the 
southeast and ridges to the west and east. Just not much room for a 
low to maintain itself between all these. Latest radar images show 
this with convection more limited this afternoon than yesterday 
afternoon. Maybe not but a lot...but definitely a noticeable decrease. 
Hrrr is slightly overdoing the coverage at the current time stamp 
and it suggests a quick decrease in activity as the sun sets... 
which is to be expected. Offshore showers will likely continue 
overnight as with previous nights. 


Between now and Sunday the rain chances will gradually decrease as 
upper level ridge builds further east across the southern Continental U.S.. 
this will also result in increasing temperatures...bringing them closer to 
the climatology norms. 


Previous discussion 
next week models still point to an active jet pattern and an upper 
trough that will dig across the the eastern part of the country 
Sunday into Monday. This will result in a cold front being pushed 
into the lower Mississippi Valley and north half of forecast area 
Tuesday through Wednesday. Rain chances will increase along and 
south of the front Monday and Tuesday. 18 
&& 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions are expected to prevail outside any localized 
convective impacts. Much of the convection should abate by 01z and 
redevelop generally after 16z Thursday. 24/rr 


&& 


Marine... 
main Bermuda surface high extends into the Gulf of Mexico with a 
sub-like center being maintained in the eastern Gulf of Mexico today 
through the weekend. This will keep flow generally southwest with 
speeds ranging mainly from around 8-13 knots and seas 2 feet or 
less. A weak summertime cold front will approach the coastal waters 
early next week. At this time it appears the boundary will stall 
across the offshore waters which will causes winds to become 
parallel to the boundary.
